comment Need HP recovery partition info
they should work regardless of the state of the hard drive; when I worked at a computer repair company and we got laptops back from HP, they'd often ship us blank hard drives to be replaced and we'd use the recovery disks we had to restore the system. Any idea what the error code is? do you have a plain XP/Vista/7 (whatever the operating system is) disk?

comment Connecting a ADSL router to a wireless router. What am I doing wrong?
Is the ADSL device a modem or a router? Your question text and the title seem to conflict.

comment IP address of host of Wi-Fi ad-hoc network?
In reality, it doesn't mean that there is a "problem" with DHCP; it just means that it was unable to get an IP through DHCP and automatically assigns itself an IP in the 169.254.0.0/16 range. It's APIPA (Automatic Private IP Addressing) and it IS a standard that is supported, even on the iPod Touch/iPhone (and really, on most any networked device).

comment Backup iTunes (store purchases, iphone backups, playlists) for Windows reinstall
This will work on Windows as well as OS X; iTunes is nice that it keeps everything in one directory. This solution also assumes you have your entire music library consolidated in the iTunes Music folder (if iTunes is set to manage your music for you then you're ok). If not, now would be a good time to do so.
